How to Disable App Specific Notifications on macOS

If you have a lot of apps installed on your Mac, then you might get a lot of notifications from each of them too. By default, the notification will appear at the top right of the Mac screen.

But of course, if too many notifications appear on the screen, you will find it difficult to concentrate, especially when you are working.

Luckily, Macs come with a feature to turn off notifications from certain apps you want.

That way the notifications that appear on the screen are notifications from only important applications that you need.

How to disable it? Just follow the tutorial below.
How to Disable App-Specific Notifications on macOS
In this tutorial, I’m using macOS Monterey 12.0.1.

My Mac may look different from yours, depending on the version of the Mac you’re using.

But this feature is more or less the same if you use macOS with the same version as me or later.

If you are using an older version of macOS, feel free to adjust it yourself.

Immediately, here are the steps:

Open the System Preferences menu on your Mac.

After that select Notifications & Focus.

You will see a list of apps in the left-hand bar, then on the right-hand bar, you can enable or disable notifications for that app.

You can also choose two types of notifications that certain apps can display.

For example, if I enable the Banners option for Firefox, then Firefox can later send me a notification that appears on the top right side of the Mac. The notification will disappear automatically after a few seconds.

Meanwhile, if I select the Alerts option, the notification displayed by Firefox will not disappear until I choose to delete the notification.

Alert-style notifications are perfect for those of you who are forgetful. Because the notification will still appear on the screen until you click on the notification.

That was the tutorial on how to set any application that can send notifications.

By applying the method above, your Mac will not be “flooded” with notifications.

So that later when you are working, you will not be disturbed by these notifications.

Notifications that appear on the screen are only from applications that you have allowed and are important, for example, instant messaging applications, email, and the like.

You can enable notifications from other apps if you want.
